Fans have been debating who is the strongest Saiyan ever for decades, and Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Universe Mission may have provided the answer. The Dragon Ball Heroes manga is known for introducing a slew of new characters, many of whom quickly rise to godlike status. Cumber, the enigmatic “Evil Saiyan” who may be the most powerful Saiyan in existence, is one of these new characters.
Cumber, a renowned warrior imprisoned on Prison Planet by the demon Fu, is introduced in Chapter 2 of Super Dragon Ball Heroes: Universe Mission. Fu has imprisoned Goku and Vegeta on the Prison Planet, and they need need the Dragon Balls to free themselves. However, the only way they can get said Dragon Balls is to take part in Fu’s battle royale experiment and fight until all seven balls have been collected. The enormous Saiyan Cumber arrives on the battlefield before Goku and Vegeta have a chance to start looking for adversaries with Dragon Balls.
Cumber is able to fight off Super Saiyan Blue Goku with his aura alone very immediately after his arrival. His raw ki is so strong that it drives Goku mad for a brief time, causing him to assault Vegeta in a berserker frenzy.Cumber’s ability to break free from his bindings so swiftly impresses Fu, but the devastation doesn’t stop there. Knowing the danger Cumber presents, Goku and Vegeta decide to merge nearly immediately after snapping out of his berserker condition. Super Saiyan Blue Vegito uses the strength of Potara fusion to fight Cumber, only to get pummeled while Cumber is still in his basic form. Desperate to win, Vegito layers the Kaioken on top of Super Saiyan Blue, but he still falls short of defeating Cumber in his Golden Great Ape form.Cumber’s entrance flips the universe of Dragon Ball on its head right away. When an unfused Saiyan in base form goes up against Super Saiyan Blue Vegito, it’s a very high bar to clear, practically instantaneously placing Cumber on the same level as the Gods of Destruction. Cumber’s strength as a Golden Great Ape is unquestionably devastating, capable of deflecting a full-power assault from a Kaioken-enhanced Vegito Blue.
Cumber is a serious contender for the title of strongest Saiyan ever. Though his wrath upon witnessing Super Saiyan God Goku alludes to a more distant history involving the first Super Saiyan God, there’s no question Cumber has grown in strength from his beginnings. The sheer might of the legendary Saiyan warrior Cumber, with not even the Potara fusion standing in his way, may easily break the Dragon Ball Heroes world apart.
